BUSINESS PLAN PROPOSAL
Melissa Shafer
Founder
SushiWire
Seattle, Washington
PROPOSAL SUMMARY
SushiWire will use existing texting technology to facilitate making the transfer of small amounts of money easier
and at a low fee per transaction.
BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
SushiWire will facilitate transferring a small amount of money to another person overseas, and at a minimal cost.
The customer only needs the recipient’s phone number. While this is attractive to parents of children who live
overseas, it can also be a good micro-financing option. The simplified method will be used between phones the
same way Red Cross lets you text to donate to them. The small usage charge will go from the customer’s phone and
signal our program in a text message if they have connected their phone to SushiWire along with their bank
information.
VISION
To make transfers of small amounts of money simple, quick, and affordable (only pennies per transaction!).
TARGET AUDIENCE
Users of this service will be mostly students traveling or living abroad, and their parents. These days, the tech
savvy student will have no problem ensuring their account is synced to their cell phones. All a parent has to do is
text a dollar amount to one number, and then approve the transaction.
GOAL
Simplifying the transfer process is paramount to ensuring the service’s popularity. Using the same technology as is
used to make a donation, the fee is actually included in the phone bill instead of having to get approval for a
withdrawal from the bank. SushiWire signals the account the same way PayPal does, only faster because it uses
text for “instant” availability.
Initial Costs in 1st Year
Infrastructure
Tech Staff
Programming
Marketing
$10,000
$300,000
$100,000
$150,000
REVENUE MODEL
Fees are charged at a rate of $0.01 to $0.02 per dollar transferred, generating as much as $2.00 for a $100
transaction, for example. Most of the transactions would be small, and the cost to the consumer will be low,
however its popularity, and thus frequency of use, would produce excellent revenues.
ESTIMATED GROWTH FIRST YEAR
10,000 customers
The average customer makes 2-3 transactions per month.
The average transaction is $50
FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
To incorporate a mobile app with an email trigger instead of only a text-triggered way to finance.
